Investing in commercial real estate involves a wide range of investment factors which are unique to each transaction. Beyond the financial modeling of the investment returns, how the owner decides to hire vendors, spend due diligence funds, and ultimately manage the asset will determine whether any particular property has met their goals. The most important factors for any real estate deal are the following:

  • Investor Goals
  • Investor Experience
  • Type of Property
  • Management
  • Financing/Capital Stack available
  • Need for Creative Solutions

The first step is to understand your own goals for acquiring the property. For example, an investor purchasing core property with near-full occupancy at market rates is willing to pay a lower cap rate (higher income multiple) for real estate investments and is more sensitive to interest rates on borrowed funds. On the other extreme, a value-add investor will exit the property sooner than a core buyer and will be less sensitive to costs of borrowing and more interested in purchasing “at a discount.” In this same vein, investors will place different emphasis on different parts of the legal process, i.e. Letter of Intent, Purchase and Sale Agreement, due diligence review, financing obligations, seller representations and warranties, and ultimate legal management of operations. Ronald Rohde Law is focused on understanding what each investor needs and then prioritizing those needs above others. In addition, our structure provides the investor with security in regard to the cost of legal services, responsiveness during critical periods, and educating our clients through each step of the process.
